While I admire the LMA urge to explore absolutely everything about the band, I do find this particular debate a bit surreal. If there's time, shall we also discuss which was worse: their East-Coast tour in April 1984 or in October 1984?

That said, although I've frankly listened less to 1972 than to 1973, maybe I'd vote for slightly better jamming in the Fall and slightly tighter first sets in Europe? Slightly, though, on both counts.

Actually a spring '84 vs. fall '84 debate would be pretty interesting... But the Brent years don't seem to inspire these kinds of hair-splitting discussions! Though I think even then, you can find some big changes in the band's playing from one season to the next...

I could hold my own with that dis/cuss (more dis'n or more cussin'?)- I lived through those dark ages! & Still think that the opening of the East coast tours are pretty good shows- Hampton's Scarlet>Fire, Terrapin, Dew, & of course, Don't Need Love! Closing out the Fall at BCT- come on you guys!

Hair-splitting? Carbon nanotube splitting!
